Digitalizing the world of logistics

In today's globalized world, air freight impacts every aspect of daily life. From new technologies, exotic foods and spices, to the latest fashion trends, air freight makes it all possible. However, the air cargo market is far behind the passenger booking experience. Cargo capacity is still sold and booked via email and telephone...

We want to beam the air cargo industry into the 21st century. So we decided to build a company, from the ground up, that would reinvent the way airlines and freight forwarders interact.

Just one year after our founding, we have proven that the industry is more than ready for this change. We have attracted leading airlines and freight forwarders such as Lufthansa, Finnair, Dachser, Hermes, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, and nearly 300 more. With top-tier investors Creandum and Point Nine Capital on board, we are only getting started.

We need you to help us shape the future of air freight! At cargo.one we believe that we can only win as a team, and we want you to make an impact with cargo.one.
